Re: Maglev technology for aircrafts - any possibility?

Thanks jok! So, it should be viable for land based aircrafts also - small passenger ones and jet fighters? Could you also indicate any pros and cons versus current system. Best regards. For comfort reasons, the acceleration of a civilian aircraft must be much lower, since not all passengers on boar...

Re: Maglev technology for aircrafts - any possibility?

Is there any possibility that maglev technology can be used for aircrafts, at least taking off, and for small aircrafts? If yes, what are the pros and cons? Maglev systems are being used on new U.S. aircraft carriers to quickly bring fighters up to airspeed. In the past, these were compressed air-p...

Re: Hyperloop - pod design and dimensions - significant effect on tube sizing?

Since Hyperloop will operate in a vacuum, is it not better if capsule is designed longer instead of two or more seats in a row - essentially one seat behind the other with a few in series, still in a single capsule. Each seat may also be like a bed, people can lie, nearly, instead of sitting. In su...
